Its kind of surprising how little talk there is about Korkmaz. He's playing really well. Shooting, young age and his defensive effort has been much much more consistent since Doc called him out on that.

3PT% is once again trending towards 40%. Perimeter defense is still a liability, but at least he's generating steals. We should use our bird rights to re-sign him to a reasonable contract. If only for money matching purposes in future trades.

They need to get Hill more minutes with the starters, to get ready for the playoffs.

Yup yup.

I’ve been dying for us to play against a good team on a close game and see how we’re going to play. Im also guessing Hill will be the 5 closing the game.

Yup. He can play with either our starters and back-up unit. Lord Korky has become underrated.

Let’s not forget that he’s our go to guy when we need a game winner 3. 8-)

He’s been around for what feels like forever so I don’t quite think people realize how young he is. Doc seems to have helped him take a nice leap forward with his defensive effort and consistency.

Korkmaz shoots with no fear , thats what i like about him. If Tobias and Curry shoot the 3 more like him, we would be a better team. They are worried about their percentages..

Hes not being talked about, because he is likely gone after this season. He's an unrestricted free agent and they're not likely to match what he'll get on the open market. What's the point of talking about a young player who's future is somewhere else.

He’ll resign here. My best friend is also from Croatia and assured me it’s being talked about over there.

Two things that stand out for me this game.
1.) George Hill played a lot of SF as back-up of either Tobias or Ben
2.) Tobias size is a problem for us on defense against good big PFs, altho this can be solved with Ben defending them
